An ongoing weekly Torah class at Congregation Agudat Achim.
Rabbi Spitzer, the new spiritual leader at Agudat Achim, has been offering this class since early Sept., focusing on an aspect of the weekly Torah portion through Divrei Torah (articles) written by contemporary scholars. The students read the commentary along with relevant sources, and analyze how the writer uses the weekly Torah portion to convey and support his/her message. “We try to answer the question whether this teaching is a valid interpretation of the text or reads too much into it,” said Rabbi Spitzer. “We have had some truly rousing discussions,” he added.
